I am very excited about this opportunity to share my perspectives and experience in my BeyeNETWORK Blog. For those of you who may not have read my articles and newsletters over the past few years, I hope you will appreciate a vendor-independent perspective on all things related to Business Performance Management (BPM). I focus on key topics organizations should consider throughout their BPM project lifecycle, from early stage requirements definition and justification, key measure development, vendor selection and finally, successful deployment and rollout. Of course, market trends and vendor updates will also be part of the mix. Please stop by on a regular basis to see what's new, and to make this interactive, please share your opinions. If you have a specific question, contact me directly at cschiff@bpmpartners.com.

I know I'm beginning to sound like a broken record, but yet another vendor has done an acquisition to flesh out their BPM 2.0 capabilities. In this case it's SAP purchasing Pilot Software. Pilot Software has been around for many years and in many different forms. In its latest incarnation it was focused on operational performance management with the PilotWorks product set. Our 2007 BPM Pulse survey confirmed the growing importance of this area of performance management. SAP had previously announced its intention to use 'fill-in' acquisitions to supplement organic growth. I'm glad to see them focusing some attention on performance management. As a matter of fact, we have been seeing them more and more lately in the field competing for business performance management deals.
